These tuna patties are quick and easy to whip up and are loved by my whole family. If there are leftovers (which is rare), my 5 year old loves them in her lunchbox and I have taken them to work for lunch too. I like to serve them with homemade mayonnaise, cauliflower mash and either raw or cooked veggies. They would be great with a big salad too.
